Oh my gosh, I can't believe you & the crew have the flu! Uff! I'm glad you had everything out before now. I hope you will enjoy the evening anyway, and that you get lots and lots of help when the time comes to put everything away!
I have some! Although of course I kept changing the lighting and moving props around. But I took enough to post some favorites. And I can't wait to see what you are pulling out of the hat for this year, even if the hat had some unexpected rats instead of rabbits. Happy Halloween and I hope it goes great!
Ugh. That's all you need. Hope you feel in top form by the time trick or treating rolls around. Always amazed at your positive attitude regardless of circumstance. The world needs a bit more of that.
Hope you have a happy (and healthy) Halloween as well. Thanks for all your kind words and inspiration this past year. This little corner of the interwebs wouldn't be near as awesome without you. :)
Gah! I did that twice yesterday when chatting with Candee. Caught one of 'em. I think she probably saw it but thanks for letting me know anyway. How is your day going today? Rushing around or is it the calm before the storm?
This is me too. Not something I'm proud of actually but I have a real tough time letting things go, and it's not a case of being a perfectionist. I'm just not as organized as I'd like to be.

But I'm hoping to shut things down by maybe 4pm on Halloween so I can focus on the TOTers. I always miss the first...
I just want to say thanks to whoever it was who originally came up with the PVC/rebar method of securing tombstones. The first few years we did Halloween displays stuff was always getting blown over - often breaking when they fell. I used to get up in the morning and wonder what would need to be fixed.
We're making tombstones with PVC sandwiched between two pieces of foam and these things are darn near immovable in some fairly serious wind. Between that and moving to PVC armatures for our...
I'm sure you saw this but I'm moving it to where I SHOULDA posted it just in case.
I'll decide if your haunt is crap. Or the kids will. ;) You're probably judging it really harshly because the process has been so crappy for you this year - doesn't make for much positivity.
Yeah, I don't remember it ever being THAT cold when I was little. There were definitely years wear we had our winter coats on. And regardless of how cold it got, I still sweated like crap under those crappy plastic...
